David Bowie is set to be recognised on the Camden Music Walk of Fame.

The Ziggy Stardust legend, who died in 2016, will be the next artist honoured with a stone on the walk, which celebrates iconic and game-changing musicians in British history.

The unveiling ceremony, which was postponed after the death of Queen Elizabeth II, will now take place on the new date of Thursday 22nd September.

It comes after The Who became the fist act to receive a stone in 2019 and Camden favourites Madness and Amy Winehouse were honoured in 2020.

Fans can win competition to attend unveiling and other exclusive Bowie prizes.

Lee Bennett, who launched the Music Walk of Fame in 2019, commented: “David Bowie is a global influence, one of the ultimate influencers, and sooner or later we had to have him on the Music Walk Of Fame.

"Our intention is for this to be the highest honour a music figure can receive in the UK and beyond, the unveiling of David’s stone ensures that legacy.

“We have huge plans for the future, but for now let’s celebrate one of the greats of music.”
